A walk thru Essaouira, Morocco, starting at the French quarter, proceeding thru the ancient medina streets full of tradespeople, shopkeepers, tourists, children. The streets are traffic-free bar cycles and motor scooters. French, English, Spanish, Arabic and other languages are heard. Zapping noise at about 12m42 is a spot welder. Recording ends with me closing my hotel door. Feb 2006 Sony MZ-N10 and MS907

    I'm hoping to use this for an introduction animation for an evening with a Moroccan writer and his passion for film. I'm using an old postcard from the Fifties with a cinema in Casablanca on it, these sounds should be very fitting with some echo added, as well as some barking dogs, horning cars, etc.. Thanks!

    Whoops, hadn't noticed it until you said. I think it's the dangling cap for my camera hitting the zip pull of my bum-bag. Sometimes I'm aware and tuck it out of the way. Must have forgotten this time!

    Very nice. All of your recordings are interesting. In this track, what's the constant metal jingle as you walk? Just curious.
